Heinkel HE III P-4 - Lego compatible COBI 5534 - 610 brick medium bomber

Regular price £42.99


German fast medium bomber designed in 1934 and known as a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' because it was disguised throughout as civilian transport. The Heinkel HE III was instantly recognisable because of the predominance of glass in the nose of later versions. During the early stages of World War II, it was by far the commonest Luftwaffe bomber until the Battle of Britain exposed its weak defensive armament. As the war progressed, its deployment was ubiquitous. During the Battle of Britain it was a strategic bomber, in the Atlantic and Arctic a torpedo bomber, and on the Western, Eastern, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African Fronts it served as a medium bomber and a transport aircraft. Between 1935 and 1944, by which time the aircraft was obsolete and the german bomber force itself had largely ceased to exist, 6,508 were built.
